Xenia Food Store
Brunswick Restaurant & Cafe
Xenia Food Store is a local Brunswick restaurant & cafe that opened its doors in December 2017, ten years after John and Susie celebrated opening their award-winning restaurant
Philhellene in Moonee Ponds. Xenia is a little sister of Philhellene and a little bit casual with an emphasis on high quality seasonal
produce to eat in or take home. You can come in for a frappe or coffee and have loukoumades or other dessert or you can have
breakfast, lunch or dinner. Xenia specialises in Vegan, Vegetarian and meat dishes of course and the deli is stocked with
plenty of seasonal salads every day. Home made spanakopitas, yemista (stuffed vegetables), meat and vegetarian moussaka are some of the favourites.
Catering is a specialty of ours and the space is perfect for private functions.
Xenia (Greek: ξενία, ,meaning “guest-friendship”) is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, the generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home and/or associates of the person bestowing guest-friendship.

A toss up between 4 and 5 stars as I’ve decided 5 stars were reserved for outstanding. But taking everything into consideration as a whole, Xenia earned the 5 stars. Not only was the food delicious (the goat and the moussaka…and the platter for two were standouts, oh and the potatoes), but the staff were friendly, informative and patient (my mother-in-law was unfamiliar with Greek food and the server took time to explain and recommended dishes). Try the dishes mentioned above with some Greek beer and have an iced coffee to bring yourself out of the food-coma (the portions are big and we brought a lot of food home with us). We’ll be back.
Great food, great service, great ambience.
Makes you feel like you are in a corner shop on a Greek island.
But what else would you expect from John & Susie. They live & breathe hospitality, even supplying their produce from their own home grown community Vege Garden.
Do yourself a favour a try this place out. Absolutely fantastic food and excellent service. The lamb pita is absolutely delicious and the slow cooked kid goat is indescribably mouthwatering. Thank you for a fantastic birthday dinner!
